How You Can HELP
Your gift makes a positive difference every day at Noble HORIZONS
Noble Horizons owes its very existence to the foresight and generous spirit of its donors. Over 50-years ago, John H. and Ethel G. Noble established the Noble Charitable Trust to provide a dignified lifestyle for older people “in comfortable and pleasant homelike surroundings”. 20 cottages opened on 64 wooded acres in June, 1972 and in 1973, the Trust also funded the construction of Riga, Noble’s intermediate care residence.
The Whitridge Residence, where Noble’s skilled nursing and memory care are provided, was seeded by Arnold Whitridge’s generosity. Mr. Whitridge later donated funds to erect the beautiful non-denominational St. Luke’s Chapel.
From 1975 through 1983, generous individuals donated an additional 24 cottages, and by 2005 another six were built by donors wishing to enjoy and to leave for others the comforts and security of life at Noble Horizons.
Ongoing generosity has made possible countless amenities such as the dental clinic, gazebo, golf carts, mini buses, transportation vehicles, a wellness clinic, the hair salon, wifi, art, library, outdoor sculpture, countless gardens and so much more. Gifts have allowed us to increase the campus to 110-acres and to offer the facilities and services needed to enjoy comfortable, secure, and fulfilling lives in a beautiful setting and a life-affirming atmosphere.
Your gift will continue this legacy of generosity, upholding Noble’s tradition of 5-Star care as well as its commitment to provide for residents even if their financial resources are exhausted. Residents can feel secure that whatever the future may bring to their health or finances, Noble Horizons will take care of them. Your donation makes this possible.
Donations to the Village Fund are used to improve facilities, initiate programs and purchase equipment not provided for in the operating budget. It supports pet therapy, art, and health, education and other special programs as well as The Robert E. Julien Music Appreciation Fund which brings professional musicians and music educators to Noble for the enjoyment of all members of the Noble community
The Supplementary Fund covers one-time or occasional necessary expenses, such as eyeglasses, dental appliances, hearing aids or clothing, for residents with very limited financial resources.
Established by the late Dorothea Elliott in memory of her husband, the fund provides scholarship support to Noble employees or their children who are attending college nursing programs.
The Employee Scholarship Fund is a source of tuition reimbursement for employees pursing college degrees.
Giving Appreciated SECURITIES
You may find that you can give more to Noble Horizons at less cost to you by contributing securities that are worth more now than when you bought them. For appreciated securities, a benefit to the donor is the avoidance of capital gains tax. If you have depreciated securities, it may be to your advantage to sell your securities and give the proceeds to Noble Horizons. You receive the charitable deduction for the cash gift and may be eligible for a capital loss.
Please consult with your attorney or accountant to see if:
- You can eliminate capital gains taxes on donations of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds you've held for more than one year.
- You will be eligible for an income tax charitable deduction based on the full fair-market-value of the stock on the date of the gift.
IRA Charitable CONTRIBUTION
IRA Qualified Charitable Contributions have been made permanent.
